Tommy by Kit Power
Hardcover – PS Press – Jul 2019 – 123 pages
A Rock Opera about trauma, abuse, religion, enlightenment, recovery and so much more. About the sickly soul of a nation and whether it can be healed. About false idols, and self discovery. TOMMY landed in cinemas like an atomic bomb, an incendiary mix of overwhelming visuals and quintaphonic sound.
The meeting of minds that was Pete Townshend and Ken Russell produced a movie unlike anything that has ever been seen, before or since. It is a movie which blows you back in your seat with images that you can feel in your chest, just like you can the thumping bass and drums.
Ken Russell and Pete Townshend’s TOMMY is tremendous art.
Come on the amazing journey, and learn all you would know.
